Tax Controversy/U.S. Tax Court Litigation
The Law Office of Scott Fridley offers its clients extensive experience in tax controversy and litigation including federal and state civil tax litigation; property tax disputes and litigation; representation of taxpayers before IRS Appeals offices; and representation of taxpayers during civil and criminal IRS examinations.
Tax controversy attorneys regularly represent clients before the Internal Revenue Service during all phases of a tax audit, including drafting and negotiating protests before the appeals office and in litigation before the United States Tax Court, as well as all federal trial and appellate courts. I represent clients in state tax audits before state tax agencies and local tax officials by briefing and negotiating state and local tax issues and litigating before all state trial and appellate courts. As a tax controversy attorney I work with clients from the inception of an audit to develop an audit strategy and to manage the audit (including multistate audits) to obtain favorable results through settlements or through administrative hearing and judicial resolution when necessary.
